Starks on course for Iron Throne

April 4th, 2019 Home, Media & Journalism, News & Events, Press Release, Television

The Stark family are firm favourites to become the new rulers of Westeros, as Game of Thrones season eight looks set to start.

Bran Stark is now odds-on to take the Iron Throne in final season of the award winning HBO show, which has fans around the world gripped about the outcome.

He was as long as 33/1 following the end of the last season, but regular and big support has seen him become the firm favourite.

But Bran is not the only Stark in the running as his sister Sansa is second favourite, backed into 7/2 in recent weeks. The third Stark sibling Ayra is seen as the outsider of the three, although she is seemingly quite backable at 12/1.

The other big mover in the market is Gendry – a fans favourite, and the rightful heir to the throne itself and some believe he could very well be the one to end GOT on top.

The ever popular Jon Snow is very much still in the running, standing at 4/1 in the betting.

OddsMonkey spokesman Peter Watton commented: “The interest in Game of Thrones is phenomenal and Bookmakers have taken advantage.

“This market has been going crazy, but one man has been dominating for months and than is Bran Stark – he has gone to odds-on, and together with his sister Sansa – it is hard to see a Stark not being on the Iron Throne once this season comes to an end.

“Indeed, current ruler Cersei Lannister could be good value at 16/1 if you can’t see a change happening.

“As the series goes on – we might see some major changes, so the betting market is well worth keeping an eye on.”
